Lol! Then what's not to worry!? :P

Now you're saying "yeah, tough luck, you bought a useless case" :P Well, I got the vfd to work now, still have nooo idea how to get that IR receiver to function, though...

*Edit: I got the VFD to work only on the system itself, so I can output my own messages to it, but nothing more (linuxmce doesn't support it, as he said...)

Oh my.. I just bought this case yesterday!

I'm gonna install it tomorrow, so it doesn't work well?

Head over to the ubuntu-forums, I know I saw a thread there which solved *all* the problems (that's why I decided to buy that case :))

Ok, it's quite a messy post (thread even) so I'll try to sum it up :P

I'm not interested in running 2 DHCPs! I actually want the router to JUST give the core internet access and send out a wifi signal... (So, in some way, this *router* should more act like a switch, a switch which provides access to the internet)

I want to do this because there are some MDs & orbiters that I can not connect to my core directly, they're too far apart to lay in another cable, so I want to connect them to the router instead.

Thanks for the help, and I'm afraid I'm going to give you a bit of a headache :P

You said "The Core/Hybrid Internal address will have to be on a DIFFERENT subnet as your router/core external interface. " but that's just what I do not want ...

One half of the house is going to be connected to the hybrid through a switch (I ordered today, together with lots of other stuff, including a new cpu, motherboard, 3D card, case, ... I just wanted to throw that in somewhere :)) but the other half will HAVE to be connected to the real router (as will all the wifi stuff) and I don't want them to be on different subnets because there are a few MDs among them..

I *kind of* succeeded at this, but it's still rather flaky...

Here are the network settings:
INTERNAL_MAC    00:16:17:73:7C:01
DNS2 is the real router and now they're both on the same subnet...

600-800k? Aah, such divine speeds!

I used to have nice speeds, 550kb/s at best, when I lived in the city. But now I'm back in this farmer-like-village, so 300kb/s really is the best I can do...

Being surrounded by nature is fun, but *daaammnnn* my adsl speeds! :P

Errr, I'm going off-topic here

I'm afraid I can't show much sympathy as I'm gonna say "Sucks to be you..." :P

I'm seeing everything fine over here, pictures and all! :)

Let's try some basic check-ups any helpdesk would suggest you, hehe: have you tried cleaning out your cookies? Have you rebooted the computer yet? Or (a personal favorite) are you sure you're connected to the internet? :D

Hmm, I have turned the firewall on the hybrid off, but that didn't help. I also can't completely turn the firewall of my real router off, but I *can* put a computer into a "DMZ" (Demilitarized zone, haha) I've tried this on my hybrid *and* on my computer, but still no luck ...

And, errr, I do have multiple ip's actually:

I'm using a static ip as my "external network card eth0" (the one from the real router, as I turned that DHCP-server off) and that IP address is the same one as on my internal network card...

And still the best (not to mention most efficient) way to mirror, is to simply seed the torrent.  Having a few good solid dedicated seeders (instead of mirrors) should solve any possible speed issues instantly, better then any mirror ever could.

Apart from that, a bunch of people have reported broken downloads from plain mirrors in the past and having to download over and over again, this problem is non-existant with torrents and you don't have the hassle of having to reassemble parts only to discover the md5sum doesn't match. 

I have thought of the same thing over and over again! There would be no more slow torrents nor would there be such a big strain on the mirrors as it would all be spread out evenly *and* everybody who downloads it would be giving *something* back, no matter how fast they are, every bit helps... Literally!

Hello again,

I've set up my temporary hybrid (it's only a celeron 2,66 ghz in a very old case). It's connected to my real router, but I can't connect all the devices to the hybrid directly. I still wish to use my real router as an access point, and I even want to connect some other devices to it.

Now, this all kind of works, my computer is getting an IP address from the hybrid, but then I stumbled on to a real problem: I can't open my ports!

I tried opening a port in the real router, and I even disabled the firewall on the hybrid, but I just can't get through...

Installation issues / Re: DVD vs CD Installation
« on: January 29, 2008, 08:56:37 am »
Another DVD pro is that you can *completely* install a system, where when you use the CDs you need to have Kubuntu installed already. (Err, I hope I got that right this time :P)

Installation issues / Re: Non-bootable CDs (Downloaded Torrents)
« on: January 28, 2008, 11:24:28 pm »

I did think this possible, because some people were talking about installing from an original KDE installation, but when I looked at the LMCE demo-video I really did see the CD or DVD boot, and I saw the choice "Install LMCE" (or something like it)

I know that was version 7.04, but I can't immagine why this wouldn't be there anymore in 07.10 ...

edit: And it all seems so simple now; the CDs aren't bootable, the DVD is ...

I just burned 2 Linux MCE CDs but ... CD1 won't boot! I burned it on 2 different CDs now and I also tried to run them on my dvd and cdrw drive, it just won't boot!

I couldn't find anything on this in the forums so I assume I'm the lucky first to encounter this strange problem? (All my other CDs boot without hesitation ...)

Too bad we can't just 'all agree'

Hehe, I sent them a mail too... I hope we're not the only ones planning on buying plcbus devices from them :P

Ah, and that does make sense in some way, but still, lighting & appliances only have phase 1, 2 and neutral..

Errr, I'll ask our electrician about this, he's coming around tomorrow.
